Policies and Procedures
Tutee Policies & Responsibilities
Welcome to the Tutoring & Learning Center at UW-Green Bay. The goal of our department is to promote your overall learning. Through tutorial assistance, you can become a more capable and confident student.
What Tutors CAN do:
- Review and explain assignments.
- Review course outlines and objectives (syllabi).
- Clarify information presented by the instructor.
- Help you identify and understand major topics.
- Help you understand the textbook and how to use it.
- Help you develop learning strategies to use in your classes.
What Tutors CANNOT do:
- Work math problems for you or do your homework.
- Teach material you have not read or heard in class.
- Write speeches or term papers.
- To cancel a session, try to contact your tutor directly via the method agreed upon at your first tutoring session (phone or e-mail) as far in advance as possible (but at least 24 hours in advance). If you cannot reach your tutor directly, you may call the Tutoring & Learning Center on campus at 920-465-2958 and leave a message.
- Your tutoring can be terminated after:
- Two "no-shows" or
- Two cancellations.
REMEMBER! Our resources are very limited! Cancellations and "no-shows" cost money and deprive other students of tutoring opportunities.
Tutoring is not a substitute for class attendance and participation. You MUST be attending class regularly to receive tutoring.
Before EACH Tutoring Session - read all assigned material, and attempt all homework assignments. Take notes on problem areas or list questions you have. You and your tutor will work more efficiently if you are specific about your needs.
Tips for a successful Tutoring Session - Ask the tutor to re-state or re-explain anything that you did not understand. Don't pretend that you understand if you don't! This is your opportunity to become very clear about the course material.
Between Tutoring Sessions - Continue to attend ALL classes. Keep doing the readings, attempt to complete the homework and write down questions that you will want to ask of your tutor. Attend Study Group Sessions when they are available.
